A Subtle Question That Expedites Deals

Posted November 6, 2018

How can we expedite our deals;

WITHOUT coming across as desperate and WITHOUT annoying the hell out of our prospects

Here’s something really simple you can do during your initial meeting;

Get a firm commitment on WHEN delivery, launch, implementation, etc is to happen and then;

Work backwards subtracting your turnaround time!

For example, if you’d like to hire me to train your sales team, I typically need 30 days to create that for you.

So if you were to tell me that you’d like to get this training going the second week in April, I’d subtract out my lead time and we’d end up with the exact date in March that you would need to make your decision.

I would then ask for a commitment for a decision, NO LATER than that date, and set an appointment (right then and there) for a meeting/call for the decision

This lets me know, immediately, BEFORE I tie up resources, how committed you are to buying NOW vs some time in the future.

I go a step further and send a calendar invite confirming this and;

I use “homework” to keep everyone (me included) on task.

This is a really important step, because it gently tightens the leash and;

It gives you another early indicator of the urgency (or lack thereof).

It also gets the decision (and necessary tasks to reach that decision), “on the calendar” and keeps things moving forward.

I believe its also an effective way to take control of the sales cycle WITHOUT being controlling or manipulative.

This is actually the first step (of several other steps) you can do to EXPEDITE your deals.
